What did you see this weekend?

"I saw Professor Marston... I thought it was fantastic. Also, Rebecca Hall needs to stop being so damn underrated!!!" -Matt

"Victoria & Abdul a tad overlong and the denouement did not quite do it for me. Though Judi Dench was compulsively watchable " -Owl

"I saw The Florida Project at a matinee. It was packed - and mainly with seniors. Who seemed to love it. I know I did. It's at least as good as the great "Tangerine". " -Ken

Curio: Type Is All You Need

Alexa here with your weekly art break.  Although film is a medium that makes meaning with images (with "show, don't tell" as a newbie screenwriter's mantra), it can't be denied that the words spoken in some films have taken on a life of their own; movie quotes are simply part of the vernacular. In that spirit, here are some artists that have cleverly distilled a movie down to its words, sometimes with unexpected results.

 

Kiss Bang Bang by illogicality.   

A Blade Runner moment from Jan Skácelík.

The Usual Suspects by JoE.

Buddy the elf, made in his own words, by Skahfee Studios.

Westley's words, simply put by The Big Harumph.

The Elf thing is cute. And why does that BLADE RUNNER speech still get me to this day. I feel like it's only one of the best monologues of all time. stil sad Rutger Hauer didn't get an Oscar nomination.

I'm with Nathaniel... that 'tears in the rain' is heartbreaking... I've just seen BR recently and I get now why it's such a cult favorite.

And that one from Usual Suspects is so true!! Tragic how a lot of people continues to fall for it.
